Last words of BRITTANY MAYNARD as she dies peacefully in her bedroom
 
01:12
A 29-year-old terminal cancer sufferer who had previously spoken of her right to die has ended her own life surrounded by her family. According to friends and family of Brittany Maynard, she passed away in her Portland, Oregon, home after her condition worsened and the tumor took over. However she was able to choose to die before she lost her ability to function. She completed her bucket list last week when she visited the Grand Canyon. People.com said she wrote on Facebook : 'Goodbye to all my dear friends and family that I love. 'Today is the day I have chosen to pass away with dignity in the face of my terminal illness, this terrible brain cancer that has taken so much from me … but would have taken so much more.' She added: 'The world is a beautiful place, travel has been my greatest teacher, my close friends and folks are the greatest givers. I even have a ring of support around my bed as I type. 'Goodbye world. Spread good energy. Pay it forward!' Sean Crowley, a spokesman for Compassion & Choices, said in a statement late Sunday that Maynard died Saturday 'as she intended — peacefully in her bedroom, in the arms of her loved ones.' Crowley said Maynard 'suffered increasingly frequent and longer seizures, severe head and neck pain, and stroke-like symptoms. As symptoms grew more severe she chose to abbreviate the dying process by taking the aid-in-dying medication she had received months ago.' Maynard was diagnosed with stage IV glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive form of terminal brain cancer and in April doctors gave her just six months to live. She then made headlines around the world after announcing she intended to die under Oregon's Death with Dignity Act. 'But it will come, because I feel myself getting sicker. It's happening each week.' The newlywed recently managed to tick visiting the Grand Canyon off her bucket list after previously announcing that it was one place she hoped to visit before she died. Last week she had revealed on her website that she had managed to travel from her home in Oregon to Arizona with her husband, mother and stepfather 'thanks to the kindness of Americans around the country who came forward to make my 'bucket list' dream come true'. In her latest statement, a video produced by end-of-life choice advocacy group Compassion & Choices, she acknowledges that some people have been skeptical about her story. Maynard also revealed that her health has been deteriorating and described a recent 'terrifying' day when she had two seizures and found herself unable to say her husband's name. 'I think sometimes people look at me and they think. 'Well you don't look as sick as you say you are,' which hurts to hear, because when I'm having a seizure and I can't speak afterwards, I certainly feel as sick as I am,' she said.

Right to Die (VICE on HBO: Season 4, Episode 3)

When California enacted the End of Life Option Act last October amid fierce debate, the number of terminally ill Americans with the right to a doctor-assisted death effectively quadrupled. But in parts of Europe, euthanasia is administered far beyond the terminally ill, including those with autism, depression, and personality disorders. VICE's Vikram Gandhi talks with people on both sides of the heated debate surrounding the right to die.

Oregon Woman, Advocate for Terminally Ill Patients, Ends Her Life
 
01:01
A 29-year-old woman suffering from brain cancer who became an advocate for terminally ill patients who want to end their own lives has died using Oregon's doctor-assisted suicide law, an advocacy group said Sunday. Opponents of assisted suicide say some people who are ill, especially among the elderly, might be unduly influenced by people close to them to end their lives and that other ways exist to ease the suffering of the terminally ill. Brittany Maynard "passed peacefully in her bed surrounded by close family and loved ones," according to a statement posted on Facebook by the group Compassion & Choices, an Oregon-based nonprofit that assisted the young woman through her end of life. http://news.yahoo.com/oregon-woman-advocate-terminally-ill-patients-ends-her-030803688.html http://www.wochit.com

Some claim it's a wonder drug for epilepsy, severe autism, and even to quell the harsh side effects of chemotherapy, while others decry pumping marijuana into still-growing bodies. We went to the small town of Pendleton, Oregon, where medical marijuana is legal, to visit Mykayla Comstock, an eight-year-old leukemia patient who takes massive amounts of weed to treat her illness. Her family, and many people we met along the way, believe not only in the palliative aspects of the drug, but also in marijuana's curative effect—that pot can literally shrink tumors.

Brittany Maynard, Terminally Ill Cancer Patient, Ends Life
 
01:45
Newsy (02.11.2014) Brittany Maynard, the 29-year-old woman with terminal brain cancer who weeks ago announced plans to end her life, reportedly died Saturday. Maynard was diagnosed with a stage 4 glioblastoma last spring and told she had six months left to live. She then decided to move to Oregon with her husband and mother to utilize Oregon's Death with Dignity Act. (Video via Compassion & Choices) She eventually started an online video campaign for Compassion & Choices with the intent of expanding death with dignity laws nationwide. A spokesman from that group confirmed her death Sunday evening. Now, People quotes a post from Maynard's Facebook that reads: "Goodbye to all my dear friends and family that I love. Today is the day I have chosen to pass away with dignity in the face of my terminal illness, this terrible brain cancer that has taken so much from me … but would have taken so much more. ... Goodbye world. Spread good energy. Pay it forward!" Brittany Maynard: "My goal of course is to influence this policy for positive change. I would like to see all Americans have access to the same healthcare rights." Her movement started a conversation nationwide about dying in America and some media outlets point to a shift in national opinion. A social medical expert writes in The Washington Post, "We are beginning to focus on what patients want, on their right to self-determination. And people are increasingly asking why anyone — the state, the medical profession, religious leaders — would presume to tell someone else that they must continue to die by inches, against their will." Five states in the U.S. have legislation in place that allows physicians to help patients end their lives in some circumstances. http://www.newsy.com/videos/brittany-maynard-terminally-ill-cancer-patient-ends-life/

According to Taylor, she kept it calm and relaxed with techniques like "feline-speak eye blinking," so much that the big cat actually snoozed in her living room for several hours. Eventually it left when Taylor "called in native ancestors' support and started drumming …" Taylor claims the mountain lion knew just what to do, and walked through the doors and took the path out of the house just as Taylor had telepathically instructed it to do.

Couple dealing with cancer reacts to a woman%2
 
02:40
BEAUMONT - by Lauren Huet A twenty-nine year old newlywed has sparked a national debate about whether or not a terminally ill person has the right to choose when to die. Brittany Maynard has stage four Glioblastoma Multiforme, an aggressive brain cancer. Doctors gave her six months to live, and they say it would likely be a painful death. Maynard moved to Oregon with her family, where there's a death with dignity act. It allows terminally ill patients to receive prescription pills for lethal doses of medication. Maynard has chosen November first to take the pill that will end her life, but she says that could change. A Southeast Texas couple faced the same type of brain cancer as Maynard. Ten and a half years ago, doctors diagnosed Mark Lindsey with stage four Glioblastoma Multiforme. He was forty-five. "That was very, like hit you with a brick wall," said Mark's wife Connie. "Like how could this happen? He's a strong, healthy man, and then all the sudden headaches, and bam they tell you you have Glioblastoma Multiforme." Doctors gave him nine to eighteen months to live. "He told me the day after we were diagnosed with this that either way he was going to win," said Connie. "Either he was going to beat, it or he was going to go home to his heavenly Father and be cured forever." He's been in remission five years. Maynard explains her decision in a video posted online. "I can't even tell you the amount of relief that it provides me to know that I don't have to die the way it's been described to me the way my brain tumor would take me," said Maynard. "It is her decision I guess. I can't say for her, you know," said Connie. But Maynard's decision, choosing to die, never crossed Connie or Mark's minds. "We never thought of that, of ending it. We had hope that we could get cured and be here," said Connie. "And I'm so thankful we did. I mean I wouldn't have him here. We'll be married 25 years this February." She says five years of treatment left Mark without the ability to walk. He also has short-term memory loss and other problems similar to an Alzheimer's patient. He lives at Jefferson Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and receives help from Compassion Hospice. "We got married for better or for worse, isn't that right dad?" Connie asked Mark affectionately. Mark nodded in response. Although Connie says Mark's cancer treatment has been difficult, it's allowed them to experience life's joys together. "Mark got to see his son get married, graduate, grandkids, and he's still here to cherish that with us," said Connie. "No doubt," responded Mark. "That's right no doubt, right dad?" said Connie. Although it's been tough, her advice is to never give up hope. "For her, I just my heart goes out to her," said Connie. "I just pray that she can find peace with what she does and her family. It would just be so difficult."

The mother of a terminally ill woman who moved to Oregon to legally end her life says California residents shouldn't have to uproot their lives to have a peaceful death. Debbie Ziegler appeared with lawmakers Wednesday to promote legislation allowing doctors to prescribe life-ending medication in California. Her 29-year-old daughter Brittany Maynard garnered worldwide attention after publicizing her struggle to die on her own terms. The Northern California woman took her own life in November before brain cancer debilitated her. The story has prompted lawmakers across the U.S. to reconsider bills allowing terminally ill patients to end their lives. Right-to-die legislation has faced strong opposition from religious and medical groups. Aid-in-dying advocates say they may pursue a ballot measure in California if the bill does not pass the Legislature.

She and her husband moved to Oregon, one of five states in the US that allows assisted suicide, and, with the help of a physician, “passed peacefully” on Saturday.

By the time of surgery it had a density of five stone and put her at risk of heart failure as it crushed her internal organs, meaning she had problems walking, breathing and eating. Last year, Dr. Erik Hanson Viana at Mexico's General Hospital performed pioneering surgery to remove the cyst - believed to be the biggest-ever removed whole. Now, more than six months on, the patient has regained mobility and returned to a normal life. Dr. Hanson, from Mexico City, said: 'This is the biggest cyst I have operated on, it was so large that it took up 95% of the patient's abdomen. It's really rare to operate on a cyst this big, it measured half a metre in diameter and the circumference was 157 cm. 'From all the research I've found, this is the largest ovarian cyst ever to be removed whole without draining it first or spilling it. 'The largest in history weighed 320lb back in 1902, and took several days to drain, I can't even imagine one that large.' He added: 'The patient was quite overweight, so after starting on a diet, she noticed her face, arms and legs were getting thinner but her stomach was getting bigger. 'When I met her, she could just about walk a couple of steps before getting agitated and feeling like she was struggling to breathe because the cyst was crushing her lungs. 'Some experts say a giant cyst is anything bigger than 10cm, others that it has to weigh over 26lb (12kg) or that it has to be higher than the umbilical of the patient - this cyst was much bigger than all of them. 'If we hadn't operated it would have gotten to the point where she wouldn't have been able to walk, would be severely malnourished and unable to eat. It's hard to say how long she would have lived, but it would have been a really bad quality of life. 'Two days after surgery she walked out of hospital. Before she was used to carrying 73 lb (33kg) inside her because of the cyst, so movement was like she was levitating or walking on the moon. 'When we saw her six months after surgery to see how the scar was healing and monitor for other problems, she was fully healed. She was standing completely straight. She now walks like a normal person without needing a walking stick or other mobility aids and her abdomen is now flat.' The patient was referred to Mexico General Hospital as a last resort due to the concerning size of the cyst and complicated surgery needed to remove it. Dr. Hanson said: 'Since the cyst had become so large, it had started to compress her intestines and was preventing her from eating. She would be full after eating a tiny bit of food and because of the cyst's size, it was harder for food to pass from the stomach. 'The cyst was also compressing the two main vessels in the body since is a vain and an artery, which could have led to serious heart problems.' Due to its size, Dr. Erik Hanson and Dr. Abel Jalife removed the tumour whole fearing that draining the cyst could put the patient's life at risk. Up to 20% of giant ovarian cysts are malignant, meaning that if the cyst was pierced it risked leaking tumorous cells into the patient's body. 'Draining beforehand can be dangerous, if any of the fluid spilled it risked contaminating the patient's abdominal wall and spreading tumour cells,' he added. 'But to remove it whole is also difficult because the cyst wall is less than one millimetre thin and needs to be prevented from drying out, otherwise it could easily break too.' 'There's no real consensus in the medical community about which is the best technique to operate on giant cysts.' The patient chose to take out the ovarian cyst completely rather than draining it first, despite knowing she would be left with a lengthy scar. 'She went for the open procedure knowing there would be a big scar from her chest to her pubic area, she wasn't very concerned about the aesthetics and was happy. 'She had bad stretchmarks on her abdomen and the skin on her abdomen was wrinkled, but now the abdominal wall has returned to the place it should have.' The woman has now returned to her normal life in a rural part of Mexico, living a day's travel away from Mexico General Hospital. Dr. Hanson said: 'A big part of what we do is the gratification you feel when you could change a person's life completely, and knowing they would never forget you, even if they forget to say thank you.'

Jury Sentences Woman To 10 Years In Poisoning Case
 
00:45
A jury sentenced a Texas cancer researcher to 10 years in prison after she was convicted of poisoning her colleague, who was also her lover, by lacing his coffee with a chemical found in antifreeze. Dr. Ana Maria Gonzalez-Angulo, a breast cancer doctor based at Houston's famed Texas Medical Center, had been involved in a sexual relationship with her fellow researcher, Dr. George Blumenschein. Prosecutors said the affair turned into a "fatal attraction" and she poisoned him with ethylene glycol after Blumenschein spurned her in favor of Evette Toney, his longtime live-in girlfriend with whom he was trying to start a family. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/3d281c11a96b4ad082fe88aa0db04305/Article_2014-09-29-US--Doctor%20Poisoned-Assault%20Charge/id-48fdc8647f964ee392c8f270fc7e4724 http://www.wochit.com

End of Life Options and Death with Dignity

Watch and read more here about End of Life Options and Death with Dignity: http://bit.ly/1ERU8xS Should terminally ill Californians have the option to end their own lives as patients in Oregon and Washington do? Anchor Val Zavala talks with a doctor who lost his 25-year-old daughter to cancer after a long and painful death. He would’ve liked to have given his daughter the choice of a lethal prescription that Brittany Maynard had when she went to Oregon to lawfully end her life. Opponents say allowing “assisted suicide” is a violation of physicians’ oath: that pain at the end of the life can be managed with proper palliative care, and financial incentives could lead to the abuse. How would the law work? What would be the consequences of this emotionally charged end-of-life issue?
